What Is Tempered Shower Glass?

Tempered shower glass is safety glass and by law, is the only type of glass permitted for bathroom shower installations. It's called safety glass because tempered glass will never break into sharp, jagged edges. Instead, when broken, tempered glass shatters into small oval pebbles.

We manufacture tempered glass from normal glass through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling. This makes the tempered glass four to five times stronger than standard glass, giving it a highly-prized brittle quality.

Glass tempering is the final step in our glass fabrication process. After we've tempered your custom glass panels at our manufacturing warehouse, your frameless shower is ready for installation.

Tempered glass does not interfere with glass styles or choices. It does not alter the look of clear, tinted or acid-etched glass patterns.
